Love lifted her heart to the skies. The rest of her needed a little more help.
A Silk, Steel and Steam story.
When Flavia Winters enters the aerial carriage that will convey her across churning waters to the magnificent, isolated castle of Dr. Harland Gennaro, it's not a polite social call. Nor does she hope to re-ignite their former passion. Oh, no. She's convinced the renowned scientist stole something of value from her lab, and she plans to get it back by whatever means necessary.
Once Harland blinks away the temporary blindness caused by Flavia's clever magnesium beads, he finds himself tied to a chair as she insists he return a vital ingredient for some impossibility called "Icarus". Then she demonstrates with the last of her compound, and all he can think about is convincing her he's not the guilty party-and getting into the lab with her to recreate her gravity-defying wonder.
Side by side, they burn the midnight oil making new discoveries, and re-learning old ones about each other. As an ocean storm rises with their desire, though, skullduggery is afoot. A thief watches and waits for the moment they make a discovery that could be their last.
